9:23 am
classified as hazardous, and affects their health, safety and development. the major of child laborer are the asia-pacific region where 78 million work and in sub saharaen africa where 60 million working, that's one in four kids. human rights activists say child labor is a major issue in india where children are sent down in rat holes to dig for coal. tens of thousands of them are working in dangerous and unstable mines. the northeastern state from where we report. >> reporter: descending into the depths of danger, the 17-year-old starts another day by crawling into this mine to dig for coal. but just a few minutes in he releasrealizes something wrong.

9:27 am
children are forced to work in this situation in coal mines or any other mine. >> as you said, it's outrageous. why hasn't the indian government put a stop to it? >> unfortunately, that's the main problem. in india the use of children of 15 years is illegal, but the implementation of the act of the law. those who are employing children of 15 years in such hazardous occupations like mining where the environment is not taking legal action against those employers. and here there is the need to take a strict action against the employers, mines companies, and they should their mine license should be canceled.
9:28 am
>> we have got this international conference coming up in brazil this week. what more can policymakers and international communities do to stop child labor? >> i think the governments and international communities have turned blind eye to children's rights who are working in mines. there needs to be a concerted force and i call upon the international community to look at the children's rights. i would like to draw the attention to the u.n.'s violence against children to look at these grave violations of children's rights, those who are working in mines. there is a need to take effective rehabilitation to remove those children who are

9:33 am
>> do you see this as tactics were too heavy handed? >> well, they're unlikely to concede that they were too heavy handed but there is a realization that there is a cost to continuing a very hard, heavy techniques, and of course killing people is the harders thing they can do. having sent that message it's not necessary no for them to continue in the protests themselves. it's clearly not necessary to be as hard line either. >> tell us what is going on at the moment. have these demonstrations prompted any doubt within it? >> well, i think the protest versus really demonstrated that there is a division in the sudanese society about the country in which the country is headed, that's reflected in the ruling party as well. there has been a memo sent by senior members of the ruling party to the president saying there needs to be a change of attitude and also direction, and
9:34 am
i think we'll continue to see that drama unfold within the ruling party over the coming weeks. >> how does the party deal with dissent within its own ranks. >> of course, they're not going to be very happy, they have privately expressed that view. but again this is coming from fairly senior members as well. there was an attempt to try to stamp it out away and appoint an inquiry to investigate, but that's not going to be sufficient. there is going to be a lot of debate within the ruling party about whether it's on the right course or not. >> good to talk to you. thanks, indeed, for allowing us to tap into your expertise. thank you. >> the wife of an expected al-qaeda figure seized in libya has been speaking to al jazeera. she said that sh he was kidnappd
